  1. I was 8 yrs old when i met Dewayne, he would come by Unc;e Streetys house to pick up Keith and Cindy there after work for a while. When i was a young teen Dewayne would take us fishing up at Brubakers lake in the old days or fishing and camping up at Orni creek. When i got older Dewayne give me my first job at Allee Inc where he was plant supervisor and when that played out he let me work inside the clothing factory cleaning up after school and on Saturday. The years flew by like raging wildfire and i got to visit him out at the nursing home where we talked about all the good times that had happened and all .Dewayne you were always a great friend and i loved working with you as my plant supervisor. Rest in peace and bless you always. Keith and Cindy i am so sorry for your loss and bless you both.

  3. Keith, I am sorry for the loss of your dad. He was a good man.

  4. Mr Dewayne was one of the best people I ever knew and I will never forget him. I remember when I was a young kid about 13 years old letting him drive my Honda 90 motorcycle and he rode it perfect. He was always the same acting man nice and respectable to everyone then in the 80s he went to work at the prison unit where I worked, he supervised Death Row work capable Inmates in the garnet factory and all the DR Inmates highly respected him because of his firm but fair demeanor, that kind of respect is hard to earn working Texas Death Row I know first hand! I wanted to go out to Whitehall and visit him but corona took over the nursing home could not have visitors. Mr Dewayne will be missed by all on earth but Jesus has received a great man. I pray we will meet again!

  5. Keith,so sorry for your loss. Your Dad was a great man and I loved him. He will be missed by many. My prayers are with you and your family.

  7. Sorry to hear about your Dad, Keith. Praying peace your way.
